Aseemingly intractable element of the dispute between Israel and the Palestinians, the issue of refugees and the right of return is also critical to Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria, which host the majority of the refugees living outside the occupied territories. Geoffrey Aronson's constructive analysis goes to the heart of the host countries' attitudes toward the decades-long refugee problem - and points to areas of mutual interest that might facilitate resolution. Aronson provides a brief background to the complexities involved, reflecting both Palestinian and Israeli stances. He then turns to the multifaceted intersections of domestic and foreign policy concerns that inform each host country's position. The result is a sensitive assessment that encompasses both current circumstances and potential future solutions.
